How would you describe your sailing experience? At the end of your description include a title for yourself (look at other profiles, or the about page for ideas)

50 years experience sailing dinghies, keelboats, yachts, windsurfers. My boats are rigged so women can trim without having a hard time. I know a fair amount about rigging and trimming and steering and boat maintenance and staying safe. Don't know much about race tactics or rules. Title: Skipper, able crew, trimmer, rigger.

What type boats have you sailed on - or dream of sailing on? What sort of sailing do you do? Cruising, racing, beercans, YRA . . . Transpac??

I've sailed on boats from 6 feet to 40 feet and bigger. Monohulls, catamarans, and tri's. I like well maintained boats with good sails. Cruising and low key beercans are my style. I don't like captains who shout. Two boats on the water is a race right? :)

If you are a private boat owner -- please describe your vessel in as much detail as you can.

We own two sailboats plus a few dinghies. One is a trailerable 19' West Wight Potter, with custom modifications designed by Jim Antrim, NA. It has a retractable bulb keel and a retractable bowsprit with furling asymm. It's a fun pocket-cruiser and plenty stout enough for San Francisco Bay. She can carry a full mainsail to 18 knots before needing to reef. Easily single handed. Berths for two adults and two kids, or three adults. Porta-potty. We take this boat on the trailer all over Northern California and the Sierras -- Tomales Bay, Monterey, Delta, SF Bay, Huntington Lake, San Diego, etc. We also own a Catalina 27 tall rig berthed in Alameda, also well equipped for daysailing and weekending.

Do you have any US sailing or ASA certificates? Do you bareboat charter?

Basic Keelboat, Basic Cruising. Did them twice. - the first time on Boston Harbor 30 years ago. Also review them at OCSC on SF Bay 15 years ago, when my husband got his BC cert. I sail out of OCSC as crew frequently, but I'm not a member. I like the J105's a lot.

Are you disabled or have limited mobility? You'll be welcomed, but it's very important for skippers to know ahead of time to keep everyone safe while sailing (you included).

No.
